  • Not bad but not worth paying for....

    So if this was a free viewing I could say hey interesting concept movie fun learning the world and realizing what's happening and even the ending was good except way to abrupt and the lack of fall out leaves you disappointed so 3 stars for the bulk of the movie but it felt like a really good joke without the punch line....
  • Not good

    By ALcassie
    Just a very boring movie
  • ☝🏼It's actually quite good

    By the.kyd
    ✍🏼Watson rocks this role: a unique, complex character confronts tough stuff — for ppl of any age. And as it turns out🥀, some are saying 🍅Tomato's 'vintage,' or 'heritage' critics today struggle w/ poignancy in their columns.

    Should had been a lot better than what it was.

    In a day and age when this topic is on everyone's mind, I would have expected this movie to provoke discussion and reflection on our privacy when it comes to the internet. Instead, this movie lurches from classic plot points and story pace elements to bad acting and a sub-par performance from Emma Watson, while skirting the real issue at the core of the movie. Tom Hanks's one redeeming line: "We are so f***ed.", speaks volumes. Save your money.
  • Did the movie production run out of money?

    By Eranhal
    It's seem the director realized he exceed The budget before he could finish the movie. I think he was directing and then decided to throw the script away, confused and end the movie. Then leave the audience confused and begging for a refund.
  • Emma Watson drags it down

    By ramsackle
    The plot could have been interesting, but was poorly executed. Emma Watson is not a good actress and it is tiresome to watch her over-acting. Maybe watch this in a few years when it is free on Netflix, just to catch the last 20 minutes of it. I would not pay to watch it. Sorry I did!
  • Should have passed

    I read several reviews that said this was not a movie worth renting, but saw a few that said it wasn’t too bad. Decided to take a chance, but began to regret my choice less than halfway through. If you’re not sure, they I strongly recommend you avoid this film. Not good at all.
